When i use my keyboard it registers the blue symbols on the keys,
Will give me the correct letter only when 'fn' key is held down. In other words if i don't hold down the 'fn' key the name 'milwaukee' will appear '053wa42ee. I believe this only occurs when the lock button with the "9" in it at the top of the keyboard is on, but I'm not possitive.

Locate the Fn (Function) key on your keyboard. It may be on the bottom left side with dark blue letters. Locate the two "brightness" keys near the top of the keyboard. These will be in the "F" keys, possibly if F6 and F7. They should have little sun pictures or something similar to indicate brightness. Hold down the Fn key while pressing F7, or whichever "F" key your laptop uses to increase brightness. Tap F7 repeatedly until you reach the desired brightness. Fn must be held down as you continue to tap.
If you press and hold the Fn key and then simultaneously press the Num Lock key at the top right of your keyboard you either enable or disable the Alternative Symbols of the following Multi-symbol keys:
Num Lock Disabled: M . / J K L ; U I O P 7 8 9 0 Num Lock Enabled: 0 . / 1 2 3 + 4 5 6 - 7 8 9 *
Not sure what model you have. Post your model # and I may be able to give better answers.
As far as the blue symbols. Most laptops have a special key to activate those. Look at the bottom left of the keyboard for a blue "FN" key or something like that. (You should have some key that would be just blue on it with no white--- it would say something like FN or Option or something). Hold that key down and then hit another key with a blue symbol to perform that action.
Note- that is probably how you change the brightness as well. Most laptops have the brightness control either as a blue function on the F keys (top of keyboard) or the up/down/left/right arrow keys on the bottom right.
If this was a help please give me 4 thumbs up as I am trying to build up my rep on this site!
The "fn" key is used like a shift key to alternate between multiple symbols of the same key. The symbols on the key that the "fn" enables why being held down are usually surround closely by a box. Hope this helps.
